Our society is becoming distinctly more dependent on visual images. This phenomenon has become particularly widespread with the increasing popularity of T.V., video games and the Internet. This visual epidemic has even made its way into academics. A visual is no longer seen as a useless mass taking up space on a school report: A visual can play a large part in enhancing written communication by helping people to process information that may be particularly difficult for them to comprehend linguistically.
This packet is an introduction to the various types of visuals that are available for use in written documents. It offers information to help you decide which type of visual is best for use in your paper. However, this packet presents only an overview of each type of visual. More specific detail on each type is available in our four category-specific packets entitled “Using Visual Aids: Tables,” “Using Visual Aids: Charts,” “Using Visual Aids: Graphs” and “Using Visual Aids: Illustrations and Photos.”
This packet is broken into three areas:
